[Qgis-developer] Unit tests failing - a heartfelt plea

Hi All

I just want to make a heartfelt plea that any new code pushed to Git
master should not break tests (at minimum on the platform on which you
are working). If you do radical changes, the test suite should be
updated to accommodate them so that the tests still pass for your
platform when you commit. I would like to see the test suite grow to
encompass  as much functionality of QGIS as possible, but it will be
very difficult to maintain them if we commit code that breaks them.
You can always view the state of the last nightly builds here:


You can test your work before pusing it to master by doing:

make test
make check

or (to share your test results)

make Experimental
